Here’s how to cook steak in the oven, step-by-step.

Step 1: Decide which cut you’d like to make. 

Choosing the appropriate piece of meat is the first step in learning how to cook steak in the oven. Look for a one-inch-thick steak. Choose a well-marbled cut if at all possible. This will assist your oven-baked steak to stay juicy and tender. Ribeye is an excellent cut of beef for baking.

Step 2: The oven should be preheated to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. 

Before baking, make sure your oven is set to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. This will ensure a juicy steak by avoiding lengthy heat exposure.

Step 3: Remove the steak from the pan and pat it dry.

It’s time to start preparing your meat after the oven has heated up. Using a paper towel, blot the steak dry. The browning process might be slowed down if there is too much moisture on the steak’s surface.

Step 4: Season the steak with salt and pepper and let it marinate. 

You may season your oven-baked steak in a variety of ways, and the best way to figure out what you enjoy is to experiment. You may keep it basic by seasoning the steak with salt and pepper on both sides, or you can get creative and season it with a mixture of steak sauce, dressing, onions, and garlic. To get the flavor you want, use dry rubs or marinades.

The steak should be marinated. Combine all marinade ingredients in a mixing dish, place the steak in a plastic Ziploc bag and pour the marinade mixture into the bag. Instead of a bag, you might use a marinade container. Refrigerate the bag for approximately 30 minutes after sealing it.

Step 5: Bring the oil to a high temperature. 

You won’t need to add oil to the skillet for browning if you’re using a marinade or baking a steak with plenty of marbling in the oven. If the steak is not deeply marbled and you’re using a dry seasoning, heat a cast-iron skillet or an ovenproof pan for 3 minutes over high heat, then add 1 to 2 teaspoons of your chosen oil to the pan. The taste of the oven-baked steak comes through best when using neutral oils like canola or grapeseed oil, but olive oil and butter also well. You want the pan’s surface to be very hot so you can sear the steak’s exterior quickly without overcooking the inside. Allow a cast iron pan to heat up over medium heat with olive oil.

Step 6: Sear the Steak 

To avoid splatter, carefully place the steak into the hot oil with meat tongs, leaving the steak alone for 30 seconds. Allow the steak to rest for 2 to 3 minutes, or until the caramelization process has produced a deep, dark hue. When the first side has browned sufficiently, turn the steak with tongs and sear the second side as well. Allow for 1 to 2 minutes for the opposite side to brown.

Step 7: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and bake the steak. 

Place your skillet or ovenproof pan, uncovered, in the oven. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until medium doneness (160°F) is reached. The timing will vary depending on the thickness of your cut of meat, so use a meat thermometer to check when it’s done and well-baked. In the center of the steak, insert the thermometer.

Step 8: Allow the steak to rest for a few minutes. 

Remove the steak from the skillet once it has reached the appropriate temperature and set it aside for 7 to 10 minutes before serving. The steak’s outer layers contract during cooking. All of the juices are forced to the center of the steak due to this. The outer layers of the steak relax, and the juices become more equally distributed after a few minutes of resting. During this time, cover the steak with foil to keep it warm.

Step 9: Sit back and relax as you savor your steak. 

Serve with veggies, mashed potatoes, or a salad with freshly cut chives or parsley as a garnish.
